Carbon Footprint Reduction

CO2 Reduction for Logistics Operations

For logistics and transport operations every mile saved is a CO2 saving and a cost saving. MJC²'s logistics optimization software enables complex operations to minimise distance travelled and reduce wasted or empty mileage through better planning and more efficient scheduling of resources.

Multimodal (or synchro-modal) logistics planning facilitates increased use of greener modes of transport such as shipping, inland waterway and rail, or electric vehicles and cargo bikes for last mile operations.

MJC²'s software has enabled carbon footprint reduction for in many types of transport and logistics operations, while saving money and reducing congestion in cities and around busy depots and terminals.

Distribution & Last-mile

Retail Distribution

Integrated primary and secondary logistics optimization has driven a massive reduction in empty running, which has resulted in reducing GHG emissions.

Intelligent scheduling of equipment such as double-deckers, rigids and curtain-siders, by incorporating load building algorithms, leads to increased trailer fill and reduced fuel use per pallet or tonne.

Bulk Liquids & Powders

Automated scheduling of round-trips and backhauls, combined with optimization of collection and delivery operations has generated substantial savings for bulk transport operations in the food and construction sectors.

The highly dynamic nature of operations in this sector means that it can be vary hard to make best use of the fleet without a real-time optimization system to guide the planning process. MJC²'s software has enabled a step-change in sustainability for the construction and dairy industries.

Parcel & Postal Networks

Linehaul optimization for major parcel operators has resulted in a massive reduction of fuel usage, while also saving drivers hours, making the operation more sustainable from the workforce perspective also.

For last-mile delivery operations our vehicle routing and scheduling software reduces miles travelled by 5-10%, with corresponding reduction in GHG emissions. Optimization of urban delivery operations is of increasing importance due to ULEZ constraints, and vehicle routing software allows operators to maximise the usable range of electric vehicles.

Global Freight & Supply Chain

Shipping & Maritime Logistics

The innovative work undertaken in the SYNCHRO-NET project has shown how slow steaming can be combined with synchro-modal optimization to massively reduce CO2 emissions in the global supply chain.

Smart steaming strategies, supported by dynamic multimodal logistics algorithms, exploit available flexibility and capacity to de-stress the supply chain and reduce congestion in ports.

Container Logistics

Hinterland container transport operations can be optimized to greatly reduce the number of movements of empty units, while ensuring that trucks are used efficiently to backload.

e-Freight enabled routing algorithms search for opportunities to switch to greener modes of transport where possible e.g. using spare capacity on rail instead of more costly road transport, while making sure that service to customers is not affected.

Manufacturing & Supply Chain

MJC²'s lean manufacturing software reduces waste and energy usage at the point of manufacture, while maintaining inventory levels within agreed parameters.

Integration with supply chain resilience algorithms and transport optimization software allows distributed manufacturing operations to become greener (and leaner) through intelligent scheduling and consolidation of inter-plant movements.
